Chemical-Free Bathing and Happy Skin
Many of us are under the impression that our skin is an impermeable layer, keeping everything out of our body and bloodstream. But in fact, the effectiveness of drug and nicotine patches demonstrate just how porous our skin really is, with drugs being absorbed through the skin into our blood stream.
Many things we consider "soap" like shower gels and grocery store "beauty bars" are in fact not soap, but chemical brews made from synthetic detergents, preservatives, foaming and bubbling agents. These were sold to us using the fiction that "soap" is bad for you and that a pretty smelling liquid in a plastic squeeze was better for your skin. That's just not true.
The FDA has approved over 70,000 chemicals for consumption, and most of them are actually toxic to us, or certainly irritate the skin. After years of using a supermarket deodorant bar or shower gel, many believe that washing just gives us dry itchy skin, but we promise you, eliminating those synthetic body washes and using a gentle natural soap will dramatically improve your skin's condition. Our customers say their skin just feels more "comfy."
Our Planet Soap believes choosing to not bath in chemicals is not only better for your body, it's also gentler on the planet. Using a natural soap bar can also help reduce the amount of chemicals down the drain and furthering the toxic load on our water systems.
